Bad weather conditions have already led to the cancellation of at least six flights to Madeira.
At 8 am, Madeira International Airport expected to see the TAP plane coming from Porto land, which, however, did not even ‘dare’ to fly to the Madeira archipelago.
To this are added two other flights of the Portuguese flag airline, both departing from Lisbon and which should set foot on regional soil at 9:15 am and 10:45 am, respectively.
In turn, the JET2.COM planes, coming from Newcastle, Bristol and Edinburgh, also chose not to face the strong wind that is felt on the south coast of the island, having stayed on land.
It is recalled that the south coast of Madeira and Porto Santo are today under yellow warning due to the forecast of strong maritime agitation, according to the Portuguese Institute of the Sea and the Atmosphere (IPMA).
